Hey all, I must inform you that if you’ve been planning on breaking into my house, this week is going to be a bad time. Former tech sergeant, expert marksman, hand-to-hand-combat expert, and man of 1000 scowls Adam T. Glass is going to be staying in our guest bedroom.
Tomorrow evening at the Sprague Library (here are the library locations), Adam will be giving a self-defense for beginners workshop. It’s free to everyone, and if you’re in the area, I hope you’ll come. You’ll leave safer. 7 PM.
On Wednesday evening, the workshop will be repeated at the Main Library on Level 4. 7 PM.
Thursday evening at 6:15, Adam will give a strongman performance, and some instruction, in the main thoroughfare at the Main Library. Then at 7:00, I will speak briefly and then Adam will deliver a lecture called Iraq, Autism, and the Power of Movement. I can safely guarantee that it will be one of the most interesting nights this library has ever seen.
He’ll be talking about his brain injury, his experience in Iraq, the plasticity of the human brain, and perhaps most importantly, the situation our veterans are facing when they transition back into civilian life. Adam is the best speaker I’ve ever heard, and you know how much it pains me to say someone is better than I am.
All are welcome, it’s family friendly, and veterans are especially encouraged to come.
